Finding new ways to cook salmon is such a fun thing to do! This salmon recipe will be your new favorite way to cook it. Not only is it delicious and super easy to make, it's incredibly healthful as well. Salmon is full of protein and healthy fats and lion's mane mushrooms contain novel compounds that are good for brain health.
Begin by slicing the lion's mane mushroom into strips and dicing the shallot. After that, heat a skillet on medium-high heat. Add butter, diced shallot, sliced lion's mane, minced garlic, and pancetta to the skillet. Sauté until crisp (about 5-7 minutes). Once crisp, remove from the skillet. Prepare the salmon by patting it dry with a paper towel and sprinkling with salt and pepper. Add avocado oil to the same skillet and place the salmon skin-side down. Cook for about 4 minutes. Using a spatula, flip the salmon over and cook until it feels firm, about another 3 minutes. Plate the salmon and add the lion's mane and pancetta mixture on top of it. Enjoy with your favorite veggies or side!
